To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 16 June, 2019.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

Robyn Gallimore

for Red Bird Knits   2015

Lotus Blossom Cowl

"A highly textured cowl in a soft fingering weight ombré yarn for a lovely lacy look," says Gallimore. "Intricate as it looks, the pattern is easy to knit with twisted stitches, yarn overs and SSK/K2togs. This is a companion piece to my Lotus Socks, which use the same motif. I also worked a sample in DK weight Rowan Calmer (sadly discontinued!) using 3 repeats of the chart rounds. If you prefer a slightly heavier cowl, any DK weight yarn (50g and 100m) will work too (she provides brief instructions-- Ed.)" This is absolutely exquisite-- almost otherworldly.
